## anonymous one year ago What is the product(s) in this combination reaction? MgO + CO2 is it MGO3+C ?

1. anonymous

No. It can form Magnesium Carbonate$MgO + CO _{2} \rightarrow MgCO _{3}$

2. anonymous

A synthesis reaction.

this is so confusing lol but thank you again

4. anonymous

Take it like this: Base compounds are too strong for the Carbon or carbon compound to replace anything from them. Instead they are attracted to the base to bind with them, so forming one only compound.

5. anonymous

does this happen with all synthesis reactions ?

Yes, it is about combining element or compounds to form one only compound.
